Remedy: Hydrogen peroxide

I had really high hopes for hydrogen peroxide therapy. But, unfortunately, it did not work for me. I stayed on it for over five months. It is a very difficult journey. I started from 3 drops, getting to 25, 3 times a day. I stayed on 25 drops two times a day for almost a month. Third month I worked my way down to 3 drops. Fourth month decided to do 25 drops every 2nd day once a day. That was too difficult on my body after taking it so much already, and I decided to do 5 drops evening and night. I have been positive for 8 years, my viral load is high. I quit eating all refine sugars, quit eating grains. I am a borderline celiac and lactose intolerant, with petit mal seizures and stomach problems. Now, I do have to mention that my stomach did not have any problems as long as I was sticking to the 1 and the 3 hour rules. My petit mals were deeper when I was on 25 drops twice a day, and even on the 25 once a day every other day. I am not on any anti seizure medication. I was very depressed during the time of the treatment, tired all the time. And I followed strictly arginine diet, no alcohol, no grains, no sugars, no nuts. Only fruit, veggie, meat and honey sometimes. Heavy load of L lysine and some oil leaf extract. No caffeine for the last two months. I did get to lose weight, though! And some of my conditions seemed to improve. So..thats good. I have to mention that I've got little red bumps, that are itchy under my eyes. They appeared when I was on the aggressive 25 drop streak, and they react very badly to anything being put on them, except gentle cleanse with soap. Doctor relate it to allergy. I am yet to find out if it is an eye herpes, or an allergic reaction to h2o2.
I also decided to spray some h2o2 on the back of my neck, my spine and lower back, in addition to the treatment. Twice a day, about 20 drops per 2 ounces. I did that for a couple of months. It gave me some sensations in my lower back, that I related to the virus being uncomfortable.. As you can tell, I seriously approached this problem, I never skipped a day. I am still doing the maintenance. And I am slowly introducing arginine foods in my diet. And I still have the sensations in my lower back, maybe it is my imagination... Nothing had changed so far. My major deal breaker is the rash under the eyes. I am only 28, and I am truly devastated to have this. I can't say if h202 is working or not. I though I had the healing crisis, I am unsure. I have had the same sensations you experience before an outbreak tingle, or pulsate in the same spot for months, that just won t go away. And a major outbreak for a short period of time. I don't think this treatment worked for me. Please be careful, deciding on this. It may depend on the body type and other issues Good luck to all of you!

I was very hesitant to try this out, but I'm going into it full force, applying topically and ingesting the hydrogen peroxide. What do I have to loose? Toxicity seems low. Started off testing how much I could start drinking, diluted in water 16 drops x 3 times a day. Question for users Is it OK to start at a higher dose if it doesn t seem to upset your stomach? I'm noticing, like the marble in the string idea, that virus instantly retreats, after topical administration. I'm also applying it to the base of my spine and genital area, followed by DMSO. I've diluted 20 drops in a few ml of water. My sores went away within 6 hours. We can kill this thing, with a little bit of diligence I feel confident about this and will update.

I have had chronic herpes for 30 yrs without any apparent reason. Recently I came across a link between herpes and constipation. I have used H202 before, but only stayed on the 25 drops for a couple of days. Anyway there seem to be some success stories here wrt h202 and herpes. However I noticed this www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov pmc articles PMC3486305 where they state that herpes 1 uses catalase. This is bad news of course for h2o2 users, but maybe the concentrations acquired over long periods on 2-25 drops a day will get past the catalase defenses. Still, catalase is very good at neutralising H2O2, so dunno.

I did HP treatment at home for about 4 months daily use, and after that I would take once a week. The cold sores completely went away. My only issue is that on the front side of my lip sometimes I get some dryness consistently, especially when I don't drink water. Could this be a side effect? Does anyone know how to fix it with creams or some type of medicine? Also when I flash light on my front lips I see like empty spaces where the cold sores were and I see tiny microscopic empty spaces of red. Anyone know what I should do? thank you.

I was diagnosed HSV1 genital in September of 2015. My partner's STD screening was HSV1 positive but he was asymptomatic and did not believe he had an ethical responsibility to disclose. 80% of the population is HSV1 positive. I had little knowledge HSV1 genital until I was diagnosed. I suffered a painful prodromal state, severe stomach cramps, itching, spinal neuralgia followed by an outbreak every month. Whether you have HSV 1 or HSV 2 genital or simply want to get rid of facial cold sores, hydrogen peroxide therapy actually works. There will be HSV 2 1 therapeutic vaccine within the next year or so (2017). Until then, there's hope. I began the this herpes protocol in Jan 2016. You will need to continue the protocol until you are outbreak-free. Do not take antivirals. There are two methods of the therapy - external and internal oral. I chose the external using 35% food-grade hydrogen peroxide and DMSO cream. I have not had an outbreak in two months. My spinal neuralgia is gone, I have my life back. This is a 60 day process consisting of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide drops diluted into an 8oz, 1 cup spray bottle filled with only distilled water, no minerals added. You dilute 1 drop on day 1 into the spray bottle, increasing every day by a drop until you hit 25 drops and then you descend the drops until you hit 3 drops per day which you continue for the remaining 60 days. You spray the infected area - hips, lower spine for HSV1/2 genital, the back of your neck for HSV1 facial. You then apply and massage DMSO lotion over the areas you sprayed as you would regular lotion. I believe this will work for anyone and for those it has not worked for, you simply did not follow the directions properly, distilled water only or simply need to repeat the process. I was once upon a time there too.

To Ms Warren, From what I've gathered by reading almost every comment posted on this forum, the hydrogen peroxide reacts a bit differently with each individual person, thus producing differing results. Some people never experience any symptoms while following the protocol, while others experience mild to severe symptoms. Some people have reported victory by following the hydrogen peroxide protocol, while others have reported failure or an unknown status. And some have followed different protocols. The standard procedure per the one minute cure book tells the reader to start with 3 drops on the first day, then 4 drops on the 4th day, 5 drops on the 5th and so on until you reach 25 drops. You stay at 25 drops for 2 weeks, then taper back down the same way you climbed up to 25 until getting back down to the maintenance dose of 3 drops. And each daily dose is to be taken 3 times per day. Yes, this stuff taste HORRIBLE. View my comment to see the protocol I followed. Some people follow the one minute cure protocol, while others make up their own. I read a comment where one guy increased his drops by 2 drops after reaching 10 drops just as I did , but he stayed there for 1-2 weeks, then came back down. I believe that some people have gone through much trial and error to find out what works for them. I'm following a protocol that someone else tried. It worked for her, but it doesn't mean it will work for me. I certainly hope so. If it doesn't, I don t think I can handle drinking this nasty stuff again. Just the thought of it makes me nauseous. This coming Wed is supposed to be my last day at 25 drops, as it would make 3 weeks at 25 for me, but I am seriously thinking about tapering down tomorrow, as I can't wait till Wednesday. Its that bad. Not only does it taste horrible and makes me feel nauseous just by mere thought, but, I have had to take this around my eating and sleeping schedule. I have to wake up an hour early to take this stuff so that I can eat breakfast. I can't eat after lunch for 3 hours so I can take dose 2 then wait another hour before I can eat my dinner. Then make sure I don't eat after 7pm so I can take dose 3 by 10pm so that I can be in bed by a decent hour. There have been some nights where I had to go to bed at 11pm because I didn't get a chance to eat dinner by 8pm. I like to eat and snack throughout the whole day, but I can't really do that anymore, because this stuff has to be taken on an empty stomach, which means 3 hours after having eaten or 1 hour before eating on an empty stomach. Its rough and you re not alone. I'm hoping my way works for me and I hope that your way works for you.

I was diagnosed in February of 2016. I contracted the virus from a guy I knew from school who never felt the need to disclose this important information with me. I felt so dirty and cried everyday since I found out. I have been reading a lot about the H202 therapy and decided to try it about a week or two ago. I have had one outbreak so far but gained acne like hell! I am now on 22 drops and the taste is awful and makes me nauseous. I have been taking it with purified water. I really want to rid of this awful disease because I feel like my life is over. I'm 33 years old, never been married or had any kids and just want to hope that one day I can experience that! I don't trust prescription drugs at all. I have been taking vitamins and blood builders with the regime as well to help build my immune system. I just want my life back and to be rid of this disease period! My question is how long did it take for some of you to see results? Has anyone been retested? Can any of you please shed some light on this? Thank you!

Hey ladies guys, I’ve been suffering from this disease since 2011. After having read a few things online, I decided to give the 35% hydrogen peroxide a try. I met someone online who did the following: 1 week of 1 teaspoon of diatomaceous earth in 6-8oz of water twice a day, the second week up it to a tablespoon of diatomaceous earth in 6 oz of water twice a day, at the end of the second week take two teaspoons of colloidal silver twice a day concurrently with the diatomaceous earth, continue with both the diatomaceous earth and silver during the 3rd week, then, start the hydrogen peroxide protocol on the 4th week. 3 drops of HP in 6-8 oz of water 3 times day, then 4 drops the next day, and so on....but after 10 drops, add two, so 12, 14, 16....until you reach 25 drops. The silver can be added to the hydrogen peroxide right away and can be taken simultaneously. Stay at 25 drops for 2-3 weeks, then work back down the same way you worked up to 25. The Diatomaceous earth can still be consumed twice a day once the hydrogen peroxide protocol has been started. I’m on my second week of 25 drops. This stuff is beyond disgusting. I have to hold my breath when drinking it, and as soon as I’m done, I pop a stick of gum in my mouth, immediately, because the taste is so nasty.
I’ve been trying to eat as many raw veggies and fruits as possible, but being on this protocol makes me feel like I’m in between a rock and a hard place because I’m the kind of person who likes to eat throughout the day. But with the peroxide, I can’t, because it has to be taken on an empty stomach and/or 3 hours after having not eaten anything. And once you take it, you have to wait at least an hour before you can eat. I have been having to wake up an hour before my normal wake time just to drink this disgusting stuff, then I have breakfast an hour later. I eat as much as I can between breakfast and lunch, then, from 2-5pm, I don’t eat anything so I can take my 2nd dose. By 6pm I’m home and I try to eat dinner and whatever else I can, because from 7pm to 10pm, I can’t eat so that I can take my 3rd dose of the day. Sometimes I don’t get to eat until 8pm, which means that I can take dose 3 at 11pm. Sometimes I want to go to bed at 10pm, but I can’t if I haven t eaten dinner by 7-7:30pm. Being on a predominantly raw plant based diet doesn’t help, because for me to get full off of raw veggies, I gotta eat them throughout the day. Sometimes baked chicken, rice and beans would burn through me because my metabolism is high. It just sucks all around.
I chose raw plants because I believe they’re instrumental in helping with the healing process. Supposedly raw veggies and fruit can also help to starve the virus since it seems to like items such as chocolate, rice, pasta, bread, refine sugar, etc. If one could starve the virus, even when it is in a dormant state, then perhaps raw vegetables and fruit are the way to go without any of this hydrogen peroxide. It’s a very plausible theory - starve it, then it will die. But the veggies would have to be organic or from a farmers market, and only raw foods only. It’s hard for a lot of people to commit to and afford that kind of diet, but it may be worth a shot. I try my best to stay away from refined sugar, wheat and unhealthy foods, but some days I can’t. Some days, after having had my raw veggies followed by 4 hours of starvation, I binge on unhealthy foods because I am so hungry.
Sometimes I’m so angry, sad and I feel helpless. I feel everything that you all are feeling because I’m in this as well. I feel the pain, regret, loneliness, the regret, the regret, REGRET, anger, sadness and desire to go back in time to prevent this from happening to me. What is also bothersome is the possibility that what I’m doing may not even work for me. After having read all of the comments on here, it seems like the hydrogen peroxide works for some people, and, others, including myself, have taken this stuff in our own way. It seems the hydrogen peroxide is like a hit or miss. Ever since day 1, I have believed that there was a cure. I started my overall protocol in mid January, and since then, I have had one outbreak a small one in the upper crack of my butt. I can’t say if this is working for me or not, because before the h202, when I ate fast food, smoked everyday and was a heavy social drinker, I would have 2-3 months without a breakout at all. The only truth for me would be a negative blood test. I’m wishing everyone success. It is wishful thinking, but I know what this disease is like and I don t wish it on anybody. May we all rid ourselves of this nasty disease and find the happiness and cleanliness we once knew as disease free human beings. I’m curious to know what anyone thinks about my protocol or if anyone wants to share anything in relation to what I have shared. Love and blessings unto you all, Jaimie.

About 15 years ago I began an aggressive search for something to reduce the outbreak of oral herpes when I suddenly began getting outbreaks every month. This sounds crazy, but I was desperate and tried many household chemicals including Lysol and bleach. The final thing I found to work was hydrogen peroxide. Since using my peroxide technique, it has been over 10 years since I've had a visible outbreak. Here is the technique that works for me: As soon as you feel the tingling search for any sign of the blister. Take a pin or needle and poke through the first layer of skin but not until blood. Now take 1 square of bathroom tissue and fold it until you get about a half inch square. Completely soak that with normal hydrogen peroxide. Then hold that between your lips for about 15 minutes. Be sure you feel the bubbling action to know that you have enough on the tissue paper. I always do that technique before the first visible blister or as soon as the tiniest one is visible. When I do, the outbreak immediately stops every time.

I am a 23 year old female, 64Kgs. Relatively in shape with a pretty relaxed diet. Kind of your average girl really. Around the middle of November, I developed lesions on the area that my underwear rubs against my skin next to my genitals. I had shaved a few days before hand so thought it might be ingrown hairs or some kind of reaction. I went to the doctor anyway to get it checked. A week later I was given the news that I had HVS2. This was devastating to me as for the last 3 months I had been seeing the most amazing guy and now I had to tell him this. He was kind and empathetic about it when I told him, and said it didn't change how he felt. But then a week later, he said he didn't see us going anywhere in the future and ended things. Even though he said it wasn't because of the herpes, I am pretty certain it was. Up until that point, everything had been going perfectly. This prompted me to take action and to take control over my body. I decided that I never want to have this happen again. I didn't want to have to disclose or sit around feeling sorry for myself. So I stumbled across H2O2 therapy and this page. I did a lot of research and saw that other people were having success and re-testing negative for even the antibodies. I decided that this was worth a shot and I ordered the 35 percent food grade Hydrogen Peroxide online. Now when I think back to the beginning of 2015, I had a similar and what I know now, to be my first outbreak. At the time, I was seeing someone who must have given it to me, as the outbreak happened around 2 weeks after I slept with him. I had shaved that area as I was in and out of a bikini all summer. I had also been swimming in a lake that had an algae on it. So when I got these sores, I figured it must have been an infection from the water and from shaving. I wish I had gone to the doctor then. So it was 11 months between my 2 outbreaks. And there were two things in common with them both. I got moderately sunburnt just prior to each outbreak, which I know now to be a trigger, and I had shaved prior to both outbreaks. Other than that, I have been eating what I want including chocolate and coconut, drinking alcohol and haven't had any outbreaks. I haven't even had outbreaks with my period like I have heard is very common. In terms of the symptoms, I feel very lucky and fortunate, but the stigma that is attached to herpes and the thought of disclosing is something that I have become very depressed about. Since finding out, I have decided to not to have any kind of sexual contact until I had given H2O2 a chance. I started the Hydrogen Peroxide on the 17th of December 2015 at 3 drops in 6oz of distilled water 3 times per day as recommended. I then increased the dosage by one drop a day until day 8 when I was taking 10 drops. From then I upped the dosage by 2 drops until I was taking 25 drops in total on day 16. I have been taking 25 drops 3 times a day for just over a week now and I intend on taking this dosage for 3 weeks in total. Then I will take 25 drops 2 times per day for 3 months. I have it as soon as I wake up The time often varies and I quite often don't eat breakfast, I then wait an hour before eating. Then I wait 3 hours after eating to take my next dose. After an hour, I then feel free to snack and have dinner. 3 hours after dinner, I take my final dose for the day and go to sleep. I document the time, dosage and side effects in a little notebook that I carry with me at all time so that I can keep notes and monitor anything happening to me and so far, I have very little side effects. I had a little bit of an upset stomach when I was taking 18 and 19 drops, but I am not sure if this was related to the treatment or not. Have not had any issues since. I have had no healing crisis at all. This was something I was very nervous about when beginning the treatment. Apart from the pretty disgusting aftertaste of the H2O2 that makes me want to gag and a slight uneasy feeling in my stomach the hour after I take the first dose for the day, I have experienced no side effects at all. There was one night where I was feeling really energised and couldn't fall asleep, but it was a one off so I am not sure that it is related. My intention is to get my blood taken and tested after 3 months of the treatment so see if the virus antibodies are still in my system, and if they are, how present they are. If I test negative, I will end my treatment and If not, I will continue for another 3 months and test again. Thanks for reading this novel of a post. I found everything written on here so helpful when I was looking into H2O2 therapy so figured I would throw in my 2 cents. I will post again with an update after my blood test.
